A 7" Children's record believed to date from the early 1960s and therefore probably made from plastic or vinyl.

There was an American label of the same name which issued the same recordings, and many are also found on the "Happy Time" label, both in the UK and US.

The British "Cricket" record was produced by or for The Children's Record Company, 127 Kensall Road, London W10.
